Timelapse footage of sweaty fingerprints is oddly satisfying to watch

You’ll never see sweaty palms the same way ever again. In the following video from Timelapse Vision Inc., we get to see the beauty of fingerprints at work.

Using a macro lens on a timelapse camera, the filmmakers documented an up-close look at epidermal ridges – the marks responsible in helping identify us from one another – lining someone’s palm and fingers.

More interesting, however, is how the footage also captured thousands of sweat glands excreting droplets of perspiration. Looking at these nearly-invisible pores at this level, it’s like seeing an alien landscape with liquid lifeforms slowly sprouting out of the ground.

The human body never fails to amaze, even if does gross stuff sometimes. Any trypophobes feeling queasy right now?
