Fingerprint Me

I ran across the coolest thing the other day, compliments of my favorite sister who turned me onto the television show Divine Design.


It's called Fingerprint Art. I did some Internet sleuthing and found a company that does this (
DNA 11.com). Their prices are a little steep for me right now (keep in mind we just overstimulated the economy), but I KNOW that I can figure out a way to take our fingerprints, scan them in, do a little digital manipulation, have them printed out on canvas, and then mount them on an artist's canvas.

What a unique and personal touch to add to your home.


They also do DNA art from your own personal DNA scan.

I think I'll skip that one though. I'm going to have a hard enough time explaining why I want Vern to give me his fingerprints. I doubt that "Honey, I need a sample of your DNA" is going to go over well.

That is so cool! I might try that with some black ink and cardstock and see what it looks like when I scan it. Thanks for sharing!

Want some TMI? I actually have a pic of my husbands..mmhmmm..DNA, from when were going to go through with IVF. Millions of little guys just hanging out. However, I think I'll stick with the fingerprints!

Thanks for sharing the cool idea, I might do something like this to match my kids handprints!

Have you seen the other bodyart like the closeup shot of the crook in the neck, or a fold in the finger? I think those are neat, too.
