Why Do We Have Fingerprints And Why Are They Unique?

Our fingerprints reflect the environment we encountered when our life began. A person’s fingerprints are formed when they are a tiny fetus developing in their mother’s womb. Fingerprints are completely unique to every individual person.

Fingerprint pattern formation consists of two components: developmental and genetic. So even if identical twins are genetically similar, the pressure faced by the fetus in the womb can affect their fingerprints. The print is determined by the relationship between the Epidermis which is the outer skin layer and the underlying of the skin which is called the Dermis.

The various friction ridge patterns are influenced by factors such as blood pressure, the oxygen levels in the blood, both maternal and foetal, the position adopted by the foetus in the womb, so they are unique.

🤔 How it works ⁉
