There are different kinds of fingerprints. The main ones are on this little diagram, and each are labeled.






What kind of fingerprints do you have? Keep in mind different fingers can have different styles of fingerprints. For example, with the exception of my index fingers, I have loops. But my index fingers have tentarchs. Neat, huh?

    Well, you and me both, apparently. Except my little finger may be mixed, or at least just very difficult to see clearly. I think loops are supposed to be fairly common though, so it's no surprise.

    Yeah, I had to look up a diagram myself too.

    Most of mine are loops, but both my middle fingers have arches. I'm symmetrical. Yay?

      I'm with the majority here, mine are mainly loops.

      But hey, I'm surprised most of the people posting here have loops.

      My fingers are weird, I guess.

      My thumbs are both whorls, then the right index finger is a tentarch while the left is a loop. My right middle finger is a tentarch and the left middle finger is a loop (but a weird one). My right ring finger is a loop while my left is a whorl. Both pinkies are loops.

      Also, on all my whorl fingers, the whorls are like PERFECT ovals. Strange, huh?

      My fingerprints are loops! I got really excited about this thread then I clicked the 'loop' option and saw that loop has the most votes and now I just feel common

      It's kind of hard for me to tell since I don't have ink to make proper fingerprints.

      It looks like my fingers are whorls except my middle fingers, which looks like a loop instead. Huh.

      *Squints at fingertips* Mine look like whorls to me. At least, best as I can tell without ink... and all of mine seem to be pretty similar in looks.

      I can't really tell without link but it looks like most if not all of mine are loops.

      Looks to be arch/tenarch. Then again I could be wrong but these look straight rather than to the side so imma say arch! Okay thumb looks loop but index is definitely arch so idk.
