Do you have unusual fingerprints?

Below are the three basic pattern types. The loop is the most common fingerprint pattern all over the world.

To identify the three patterns, note the 'delta', the point where lines from three directions come together. The whorl has two deltas, the loop has one (see bottom-left), and the arch has no delta at all.

Which fingerprints are most rare?

Below are some pictures of less common fingerprints patterns.
Send me a picture/scan of your palm or fingerprint if you have trouble identifying it (frvc [at] dse [dot] nl).

Double Loop

Peacock's eye
Tented Arch

To see if you have an unusual or rare fingerprint, check which finger it is found on. For example, a radial loop is common on the index finger, but extremely rare on the little finger.

Uncommon fingerprint: less than 1 in 20 people have such a fingerprint.
Rare fingerprint: less than 1 in 100 people have such a fingerprint.
Extremely rare fingerprint: less than 1 in 1000 people have such a fingerprint.

In order from most common to most rare:

  1. Ulnar loop = a loop that comes from the pinky side of the hand
    - So common, it is quite rare NOT to have one!
  2. Whorl = a spiral pattern
    - Very common, especially on the thumb, index and ring fingers
  3. Radial loop = a loop that comes from the thumb side of the hand
    - Commonly found on index finger, uncommon on middle finger, rare on other fingers
    =====================
    UNCOMMON FINGERPRINTS:
    =====================
  4. Arch = most simple fingerprint, no loop patterns
    - Uncommon pattern on: all fingers, rare on little finger
  5. Double loop = two loops going in two directions, but is actually a type of whorl
    - Uncommon pattern on: all fingers except thumb, rare on ring and little fingers
  6. Peacock's eye = a tiny whorl inside a loop
    - Uncommon pattern on: all fingers, most common on ring finger, rare on thumb.
    ===============
    RARE FINGERPRINTS:
    ===============
  7. Tented arch = arch pattern but horizontal ridges rising up high in the middle, creating a tent-like pattern. Note: the tented arch is often confused with a loop that looks like a tented arch. Look for any signs of a loop to check if it is a 'real' tented arch.
    - Rare on all fingers, extremely rare on thumb and little finger
  8. Accidental = anything else, such as horizontal rather than vertical loops
    - Rare on index finger, extremely rare on all other fingers

Character traits

Handreaders have associated fingerprints with certain character traits.
  • Loops*: flexible, adaptable, easy going, highly receptive, impressionable, unfocussed, team players.
  • Arches: down to earth, pragmatic, responsible, reserved, consistent.
  • Tented arches: hyperactive, impulsive, intense, fiery.
  • Whorls*: independent, inflexible, individualistic, highly focussed.
  • Double loop (a.k.a. composite): indecisive, uncertain, diplomatic. Some double loops look more like whorls, others are more clearly two intertwined loops. Depending on which one it is, see also the associated loop or whorl characteristics.
  • Peacock's eye (a.k.a. central pocket loop): perfectionistic, good eye for detail. It is more of a whorl than a loop, so see also whorl characteristics.

*Note that loops and whorls are quite common - so it would take about 4+ whorls to make you a 'whorly' person and 7+ loops to make you a 'loopy' person.

Handreaders also give specific meaning to the fingers. To interpret the meaning, you need to combine all the characteristics, and this takes experience (say, getting people's feedback from reading at least 1000 hands). But it can be fun linking the fingerprints characteristics to the individual fingers:

  • Thumb: Willpower/control
  • Index: Public image, self expression
  • Middle finger: Values, morals
  • Ring finger: Aesthetics, creativity
  • Pinky: Communication

The meaning also depends on the hand you look at - this is if you have different fingerprints on your left hand compared to your right hand:

  • Dominant hand (right if right handed): Public self
  • Passive hand: Private self

Fingerprints on your palm?

Do you have any fingerprints on your palm? Is it a loop inbetween two fingers? No? Congratulations, whatever it is automatically qualitifies as an uncommon palm pattern! One or more loops are usually found on the area of the palm between the fingers. The one between the ring finger and pinky is commonly called the 'humor loop', and between the ring and middle fingers is called the 'loop of seriousness' (draw your own conclusion about this one...but it refers to 'type' of humor rather than humor itself). A loop between the index and middle fingers is quite rare, and is a sign of royal lineage in Indian traditional palmistry. Some people also have loops or arches elsewhere, most commonly in the area around the base of the thumb. It is also quite common to have a loop on the side of the palm opposite the thumb, about halfway up, which is called a memory loop. A whorl print is very rare anywhere on the palm.

Fingerprints around the world

In some human populations whorls are more common, such as among aboriginal Australians, Eskimos and in some parts of Asia. Europeans tend to have more loops. Arches are more common among the Bushmen, Efe pygmies and oddly enough, the Dutch. Nevertheless, the order of commonness: loop -> whorl -> arch, is the same everywhere.

Can fingerprints be forged?

Apparently it is not too difficult to fool a fingerprint security system. Check out this demonstration from MythBusters:

Left Hand
Thumb- Arch
Pointer Finger- Arch
Middle Finger- Arch
Ring Finger- It looks like an Arch but as the arches get smaller the ends swirl out and sort of make it look like a loop.
Pinky- Same thing ^^

Right Hand
Thumb- Loop
Pointer Finger- Arch
Middle Finger- Arch
Ring Finger- Arch
Pinky Finger- Same thing as the other pinky..

Is this weird?

Hi there,

I would like to find out if my 5 year old has a rare hand print, on his left little finger he only has 2 major creases, so the crease that joins his little finger to his palm but then only one more, just to clarify he does have the three knuckles, is this rare?

Hello, I have 5 left tilting loops on left hand and 5 right tilting loops on right hand, same on feet. I also have a Peacock's eye on my left hand palm opposite my thumb. Is it normal for the palm finger print to be raised like an actual fingerprint is?

Anonymous said...

So it seems my fingerprints are on the rare/common side of the spectrum.
Female (right hand)
- thumb: Loop, with opening towards finger/pinky
- index: tented arch but with an additional 'dip' at the top where I accidentally had punctured it when using a sewing machine when I was very young (actually sewed my finger to the material!)
- middle: tented arch, with 1 loop in middle that opens towards pinky
- ring: peacock
- pinky: loop towards outside of hand, not towards thumb
- lower palm, pinky side: swirly, on outside but inside more of a loop, almost like a peacock-ish version.

Gladly provide prints for your review, especially if can get some feedback on it!

I went to someone back earllly this year that has studied palms for many lylears, i have 2 subtypes of a whorl on both thumb, 4 loops, and 4 tented arches (less than 2% of fingerprints), on a spiritual level ive been told by many people anyone with 2+ tented arches are less than 2% of peoplr known from the soul prespective as wisdom people, this is our school, also was told wisdom have it rougher in life at times to gain wisdom to help others (humantarian role) they feel complete when they help others along their paths with the knowledge theyve gained their whole life, sometimes wisdom people can suffer with addictions in order to cope with not feeling they are like most people mentally or spiritually or because of lifes hard lessons to gain wisdom.

My index and middle fingers on the left hand are both tented arches, but all of the rest are loops.

Anonymous said...

hey.. i' m always having trouble everytime i register for valid ids. One of the requirements is to enroll fingerprints to their biometric systems which will only take for several seconds for all fingers. As for me, it may always take up to an hour to complete identification and ts always a must for them to put some kind of gel to each of my fingers just to register it to the machine. One scenario was when i went to a certain health office to complete a medical exam. The first part of the process went smoothly but when it came to issuing my fingerprints to their biometric machine,they started to get annoyed(to what i have observed). Still, they managed to register all my fingerprints, but that was after about an hour. I felt really embarassed because people who were there overheard their annoyance. I don't know what to do with my fingerprints. I want it so badly to be normal again like anyone else's. Will you please help me? Where should i go to have my fingerprints checked by an expert? thanks.. =)

A friend of mine has only tented arches (all ten digits). Had no idea it was so rare. He's probably the most intense, hypersensitive and moody person I've met. His energy levels are totally erratic as well... like manic depression. He burns himself out all the time.

My two index fingers are bullseye/concentric whorls, the ring fingers are concentric whorls and everything else is ulnar loops.

on my left foot big toe I Have an area the size of a dime that has interrupted my arched Ridge print. it kind of looks like fake Patten leather. it has been there all my life and I am Over 50.
I am just wondering if this could have been manipulated when I was an infant. or possibly it had been some type of identification mark since my birth certificate says I was born as a twin but my twin did not survive. or Did He? I would love to see what my foot prints look like from when I was an infant to see how small it was or if it was there then.

something very strange. On my left foot big toe. I have an area the size of a dime that is interrupted my arched loop print. the pattern reminds me of patent leather. it has been there all of my life and I am now over 50.
I am wondering if this could have been manipulated when I was an infant. would my fingerprint never have come back?
I was adopted and I was also half of a set of twins. Which they told me the other twin did not survive. Or did he?
was this possibly some type of identification mark to keep us identified?

My fingerprints are really strange... I want to be able to classify them, since I'm interested in forensics.

My left thumb, pointer, and middle are double loops, as are my right thumb and middle finger.

My pinkies are both regular loops. (If I put them together they form a U. I think that's normal).

My right pointer has a line in the middle, surrounded by ovals. The outer ovals break into arches, which go above and beneath the ovals.

My ring fingers are similar. There's an upside down almond in the center, with a line going down it (It isn't a ridge, but it distorts all of the other ridges, so they don't line up right). The almonds are surrounded by ovals, which spread to the outside. The strange part about them is that they stay ovals, even at the edge of the print. They don't flatten into arches, like all the other prints I've seen. What is wrong with my fingers? XD

I have another loop with the rounded part vertical right below my middle R finger(it's hard to see though)
what does this mean?

PS- i have a friend who works at a Science+Industry museum in downtown Chicago at a fingerprint lab and he said that to have 2 loops between my right middle and index fingers-- one coming from the pinky side and the other from the thumb side in like a double loop- peacock- eye looking combo thing he'd never seen before

what does it mean to have all of your finger prints as tented arches?

Hi can you tell me how rare is it to have a composite on your little finger and what doe this mean, also I have on my index finger too.

Very nice to read about this, I never learned anything about fingerprints, and this site is much better than Wikipedia. I found out not only I, but also my mother, have tented arches. Only on our left index fingers though. And we are both Dutch!

I have all ten tented arches and on my left hand loops on the left side of each finger base at the palm. Right hand palm loops between middle and index finger. Interestingly have rumors of royal background in family history. European Slavic heritage. I have always had trouble being printed, have had it done for work a few times on digital camera systems. Usually have to try each finger numerous times to get a good print.

I believe I have a very rare finger print. I had an accident as an infant that almost split my left index finger in half. On that finger I have 1 & 3/4 of a print on my finger; it comes to a center and then below that I have a perminint scar and a 3/4 print below that. I am pretty sure that having two prints on one finger is rare, but I am not too sure. How rare is my double finger print? I assure this is not a hoax and I can back it up with photos.

I think I have a rare finger print. I have two different centers on my left index finger; there is a center print, below that is a scar, below that is a 3/4 print with another center print. I had an accident as an infant and almost split my left index in two, I'm pretty sure this is why I have two center prints, but how rare is that?

I have two peacocks eyes on my right hand pointing in opposite directions. One on my pinky finger and the other on my ring.

Oddly enough my left handed pinky finger is just a loop!
