Dermatoglyphics is the scientific term used to describe the loop skin ridge patterns, more commonly known as finger and palm prints. These prints are used in forensic analysis and medical research to try to recognise specific abnormalities or disorders. Unlike fingerprints, you might not even be aware that loops on the palm exist. Most people will only have one or two. I find them fascinating because their impression is a part of our natural character.
For over five centuries of observation and study of genetic medicine, psychology and brain science, scientists have proven that examining the character from the fingerprints is possible. Understanding your nature is the ultimate way to enrich your life, and the prints and palm ridge patterns are, without a doubt, a great place to begin.
I always get enthusiastic about a palm reading when I see one or more loop skin ridge patterns on someone’s palm because many are rare and have considerably positive connotations. You can imagine my excitement when I found several of these loops on one palm; the person not only had the loop of seriousness, courage, environment and nature but also the loop of Charisma. Finding five different ones on one person’s palms was a surprise.
Types of Loop Skin Ridge Patterns Under the Fingers
LOOP OF SERIOUSNESS
The loop of seriousness is between the middle and ring finger (another name for it is the loop of common sense). It is one of the more common loop skin ridge patterns. The term ‘seriousness’ describes the person well. These people are ambitious, career-orientated, responsible and always with a purpose in mind. Even if found on one prefers not to pursue a career, one would get much enjoyment from hard work. If the loop of seriousness is present in both hands, the person usually devotes their whole life to pursuing their career or goal.
The vanity loop or loop of style is one of the rare loop skin ridge patterns. It circles the base of the ring finger (Apollo mount), suggesting good taste and someone who takes care of their appearance. However, with their egotistical attitude, they can be impervious to the opinions of others. Some readers say it’s a sign of someone who cannot take criticism. This large loop can be found together with the loop of humour or loop of seriousness.
LOOP OF HUMOUR

LOOP OF CHARISMA (RAJAH LOOP)
The loop of charisma, or the Rajah loop, is traditionally on those who have royal blood in their ancestry. It is one of the rare loop skin ridge patterns. I can’t personally confirm the theory about royalty because I’ve not seen any evidence. I have seen through my studies that the person will have a strong character. They are lively, pleasant and entertaining. People admire them for their personalities. However, they tend to be domineering and come across as arrogant to more delicate souls, perhaps why it is often on those who are leaders in their field or a position of authority.
Did you know there’s a loop of Music, the Music Bee and the loop of Rhythm? To learn about more palm ridge patterns, see the article here.
