Later these prints were used to identify the criminals. Around 1900 BC, Babylonians used to take finger prints in clay plates while arriving into any legal agreement. This was done to get protection from forgery and cheating.

Sir Francis Galton (1822-1911), a famous English scientist was the first person to prove that no two finger prints in the world will be alike. He specified that there is possibility for a total of 64,000,000,000 different finger print patterns. This is nine times the world’s population today.

Sir William James Herschel introduced the method of identifying criminals in India by their finger print patterns during 1860. This is adopted by Dr Henry Faulds in 1880 in England. Japanese have classified the finger print patterns into 32 types with the names like ken, do, ko, ton, kai, kaku, etc. Using these types, they would predict the character and fate of the person.

While in the mother’s womb, the endocrine activity will start in the fetus. As a result, the ridges will form on the finger tips. This formation will take place during the fourth month of the baby.

Ridge pattern on the finger tips

Palmistry identifies 5 types of ridge patterns on the finger tips. They are: 1. Loop 2. Arch 3. Tented Arch 4. Whorl and 5. Composite. To see these ridge patterns, we should use a magnifying glass. The best way is to apply some ink to the finger tips using an ink-pad so that the ridges will be visible clearly.


The central point of the ridges is called ‘apex’. When the apex is formed like a sloping loop, it is called a ‘loop’. The loop may bend towards left side or right side with the ridges surrounding it. The loop pattern represents intelligence and versatility of the person. Such a person is mentally and emotionally balanced. He is quick in taking decisions. When all the fingers have loop formation, then the person will try to do several activities at a time.

Since the person will involve in many activities, there will be tension in the mind. There will be more rush of blood to the brain and hence there will be less supply of blood to the digestive system. Hence, the loop represents digestive troubles and heart troubles.
