Playful Fingerprint Portraits of Pop Culture Icons

Dito Von Tease is an Italian artist who uncovers famous features hidden within the human finger. His funny fingerprint portraits, which caught our eye on My Modern Met, reveal the digit-ized version of pop culture icons and other celebs. Each finger has its own costume, backdrop, and expression — a playful, minimalist nod to the famed figures. The artist’s name “Dito” translates to “finger” in Italian. Although fingerprints are used to identify us, Von Tease is an elusive artist who chooses to remain anonymous, which adds to the quirkiness of his creations. See more in our gallery after the jump.
