Fingerprint Facts


Fingerprints are formed before birth, grow with the growth of hands and help in identification. Let's learn some basic facts on fingerprints: Fingerprints come out from the interior fleshes of the skin. Even Siamese twins have varying fingerprints. Loop is the most common fingerprint. 60% palms have such pattern. The other patterns are Whorls, Arches, and Accidentals. An important means of examining fingerprints is using their "Class Characteristics". Our fingers are covered in skin pores which produce oils and sweat detected by good old fingerprint powder. An undetected fingerprint is termed as "latent". The Laser helps in obtaining fingerprints from human bodies. Identification of criminals is the most common use of fingerprints and computer database has actually helped in this goal.

THE YEARS THAT I HAVE SERVED AS A FINGERPRINT OFFICER I HAVE NOT KNOWN FINGERPRINT FROM TWO DIFFERENT PERSONS AGREEING IN SEQUENCE AND NOT EVEN IDENTICAL TRIPLETS ARE IDENTICAL WHEN IT COMES TO FINGERPRINTS.THEY MAY BE SOME SIMILARTIES IN TERMS OF RIDGE CHARACTERISTICS BUT AS A FINGERPRINT OFFICER WE CAN STILL TELL THAT THESE ARE FINGER IMPRESSIONS OF MR X . THIS IS A WORLDWIDE STUDY TAKEN BY DIFFERENT FINGERPRINT OFFICERS WHICH PROVES THAT FINGERPRINTS ARE UNIQUE AND THEY ARE PERSISTENCY THESE ARE THE TWO FACTS WHICH DETERMINES THE FINGERPRINTS TO BE UNIQUE FOR EACH INDIVIDUAL.

So im doing a science fair project and it is what surface temp. of a glass will you be able to see the fingerprint more clear. So far i have nothing done and the background research is due in 3 days i need 2c pages of facts so this website really helped me thanks to who ever wrote it.

I have compared identical twins and they had the same exact paterns. The minutia did not match though.

I am an instructor and advanced fingerprint examiner for the Ouachita Parish Sheriffs office. I want to inform you that the part above "skin pores which produce oils" is not correct. There are no pores that produce oils in your palm side of the hand. There are only sweat glands. Oils are mostly picked up from your face and head. I hope this helps.

UGHHH!!! I'm doing a science project on "Are the fingerprints of twins alike?" I am using my sisters and i cant get a good fingerprint!!! They are five sooo its a lot harder!!! Although this information and the pictures are really helpful. Thank you sooo much! You might want to add more info, pictures, and how to do the fingerprints of people with ink!!!
