You can make hand and fingerprints of yourself, friends and family very inexpensively using lipstick or boot polish. for better results use artist’s block ink and a roller or professional forensic ink sheets. For best results put the lipstick in the fridge for half an hour before using.
This is a good way to record hand shape and finger length which reveals personality characteristics such as temperament. For fingerprints (life purpose) its easiest to take photographs.
Make perfectly in focus images of fingerprints using your smartphone. Take a photograph of each hand in direct sunlight. If the fingerprints are hard to see (generally they are on older women), then rub a tiny bit of lipstick on the fingertips to accentuate the dermatoglyphics. Also take a close up of all four fingers held together with the fingerprints in focus. Then do the thumbs separately. Check to make sure that all the images are in sharp focus.
To record your personality characteristics (hand shape and line formations), you will also need to make a hand print (not just a photograph) so that you can accurately record the shape of your hand and also relative finger lengths. Photographs cannot accurately record relative fingerlength because they give differing results with every change in the angle from which the shot was taken.
A holiday project – keep a record of everyone in your family
Life passes quickly. You never know how long each of us has. I recommend you record hand prints (and photographs of fingerprints) of all your family members over the holiday season. Put the person’s name and birth date on each hand print as well as the date made. Store these records somewhere safe. They could be valuable one day, especially to future generations, and could provide great insight into family patterns and motivations. I really wish I had hand prints of my grand parents and great grandparents…They are like poems about the person, with lots of interpretations.
Your hand prints shows the wiring of your brain and your many personality archetypes. Your fingerprints are imprints of your soul, revealing even deeper core drives and motivations.
