HOW TO CHANGE YOUR FINGERPRINTS
by Wolf J. Flywheel
Okay, you're probably thinking "But it's impossible to change your fingerprints!
Everyone knows that!" Most people (including various flavors of cops) blindly
believe that, but it just ain't true. So shake that particular bit of societal
programming out of your head and read on.
Be sure to read through this entire file before attempting anything!
This file is for informational purposes only. The author (that's me) doesn't
ever do anything wrong (heh) and is not responsible for any consequences
resulting from anybody actually following the procedures in this file, including
but not limited to bodily harm, legal trouble, world destruction, and/or spilled
I haven't personally done this, but have been assured by someone who has as to
its reliability. This individual, in order to elude the law, did successfully
change his fingerprints. While at large for a number of years he was arrested
and fingerprinted six times, both in the United States and Canada, for offenses
ranging from bank robbery to attempted murder. Computers always returned the
response "Unknown" when requested to search for a criminal record.
If you've been printed by authorities before, and they should get a hold of you
again sometime in the future, it may just be better for you if they didn't know
that you just happen to be, say, the "unknown accomplice" in the Okie City
Bombing. Or Nicole Brown Simpson's "real killer." Or Kevin M!tn!ck.
If you're going to change your prints, it's best if you first research all you
can find about fingerprints and their applications in forensics. Here are the
cliff notes for you lazy types, but if you are serious about doing this you
should at least take the trouble to hit your local library and crack a book or
Fingerprints are classified according to ridge line patterns. These patterns
are divided into three main groups; the arch, the loop, and the whorl. These
are further divided anto eight subgroups; the plain arch, tented arch, radial
loop, ulnar loop, central pocket loop, double loop, plain whorl, and accidental
Prints are filed and classified by "ridge counts." The ridge count is the
number of ridges between the core (the center of the fingerprint pattern) and
the delta (the formation in front or near the center). The delta is a point
on the first fork, a meeting of two ridges, an abrupt ridge ending, a dot, a
piece of a ridge or any point upon the ridge at or nearest to the center of
divergence of the type lines. It is the position used as the starting point for
Each ridge that crosses or touches an imaginary straight line drawn from the
core to the delta is counted. A different count is made for each finger. This
is because while one right index finger may register a count of 7 ridges, the
left index finger may only count 3. A fingerprint point identification is based
on 12 to 15 distinct characteristics, such as dots, ridge endings, crevices,
bending lines, formations of islands (hollow circles and ovals), comparatively
short ridges, and bifurcations (Y-shaped forks-in-the-road). The average finger
has from 30 to 40 such markings.
The police use computers to evaluate finger and hand prints (Well, DUH). The
data on known persons is stored as numerical formulas. For ID purposes, prints
are compared with the data stored in the computer, which delivers a report of
the specifics and formulas required to identify a given person.
* an indelible extra-fine tip marking pen, the finer the better
* a magnifying glass, at least 10 power
* a double-edge razor blade
* a pair of tweezers (pointed-tip is best)
* a pair of nail clippers
* ordinary Drano (The powder, not the liquid shit.)
* healing salve or ointment
* lots of gauze
Skin is basically made up of two layers. The outer layer of the skin is called
the epidermis, and the sensitive vascular meaty portion of the skin below the
epidermis is called the dermis. The shapes of the blood vessels in your dermis
determine the shape of your epidermis.
Drano is basically composed of four parts;
50% is small, various-sized white granules of sodium hydroxide, also known as
caustic soda, or lye.
35% is sodium nitrate.
15% is filler made up of sodium chloride (salt) and aluminum powder.
For your purposes, you only need the smallest white granules of lye.
(If you can somehow get hold of pure lye instead of Drano, all the easier. But
don't expect to find it at your friendly neighborhood drugstore.)
1) Using the magnifying glass and the fine-tip pen, dot the core and delta, as
well as any outstanding groups of characteristics, on one of your fingertips.
2) Take the double-edged razor blade and snap it in half lengthwise. Twist one
piece lengthwise again and break it in half. You should now have one quarter
of the blade, with a scalpel-like edge.
3) Taking the edged piece, carefully cut a straight line 3/32 of an inch through
each dot right into the epidermis, but NOT into the dermis, which would draw
quite a noticeable amount of blood. Think "papercut."
4) Using the tweezers, pick up a small pellet of lye and insert it into one cut.
As soon as the lye combines with your bodily fluids, a chemical reaction will
result that will last approximately one minute. And yes, this will hurt. It
will, in fact, hurt like fucking hell. You may want something to bite down
5) The lye will burn a dark circle 3/32 of an inch in diameter into the dermis
with little or no damage to the epidermis. Repeat the procedure with each
6) Taking the nail clippers, carefully clip the epidermis around the edge of
each circle. This will expose concave cavities filled with semiclear jelly.
(In case you're wondering, this jelly is burnt skin.)
7) Clean the cavities with ordinary soap and water and apply your salve. Try
to get yourself a salve with what they call "three-way" healing properties.
This means it'll have an antibiotic, a local analgesic, and an enzyme (which
will dissolve the burnt connective tissue lining the cavities). One brand-
name for this stuff is Elase. Shop around, read ingredients, etc.
8) Wrap your finger in gauze, then repeat the entire procedure on all finger and
thumb pattern areas as well as any significant palm print characteristics.
Within about a month your fingers will have healed. You should have obliterated
(or at least seriously altered) any outstanding groups of characteristics. The
total count on any one finger will now probably number around 10 - 15 points or
less. As an added bonus, you'll have destroyed your cores and deltas, thereby
making an accurate classification and ridge count impossible as well as changing
the corresponding specifics and formulas. This makes it a bit harder to get an
accurate file of your prints back into a computer should you ever be unfortunate
or stupid enough to get printed again.
The healing process of severely damaged tissue, especially burnt tissue,
permanently scars the epidermis, causing the misalignment of the ridge lines in
the pattern area. Therefore, a before-and-after visual examination would show
the fingerprints are similar but couldn't prove conclusively they are identical.
And a before-and-after computer evaluation would indicate the fingerprints do
not match and conclusively are not identical.
Congratulations. And wear gloves next time.
