Lip prints deal with the characteristics found on one’s lips. Identifying a specific person by those characteristics (lip prints) is referred to as cheiloscopy. This form of identification is gaining popularity throughout the world. Lip prints are based on physical properties of an individual and during the occasions when the person’s lip prints are either smeared or smudged on a suitable surface, it is possible to obtain biological evidence in the form of skin flakes or saliva. Apart from this, latent lip prints left unknowingly can be as beneficial as fingerprints in tying a crime to the perpetrator.
