Finger Photography: Telling The Tale of the Finger People [PICS]

Today we are going to celebrate the unsung heroes that are… our fingers. I think it’s pretty safe to say that all articles of Hongkiat are written by using fingers. From clicks to swipes, from tapping to typing, we cannot really do without fingers in this digital age. Our daily tasks will be extremely hard to execute and complete without them, and it’s only fair to celebrate fingers in at least one post, like the one we have today!

Abrigos. Note that your fingers are parts of your body too, and they could feel cold too! So get them some nice coats to keep them warm. (Image Source: Mupii)


Bad Boys. Instead of painting directly on fingers, Komusō drew the faces using a software, creating this unique and amusing piece! Check out the moustache on that one! (Image Source: Komusō)
