Fingerprints are ridged patterns created during fetal development.They develop while we are in our mother’s womb and are formed completely by the seventh month.

  • Some scientists believe that fingerprints may provide protection for our fingers or increase our sensitivity to touch. Studies have shown that fingerprints actually inhibit our ability to grasp objects.
  • Scientists have found that fingerprints are very important in the mechanism of touch. Without them, it’d be difficult for you to read information and interact with whatever you’re touching or holding in your hands.
  • They are unique because of the many variables that decide how each individual ridge is formed. Fingerprints are used to identify unknown victims, witnesses or suspects, to verify records, and most importantly, as links between a suspect and a crime.
