I went for my second round of fingerprint scans at Homeland Security this morning, and it was a bit more hopeful. At least this time, I didn’t see little red boxes all over my fingerprint scans on the scanning machine monitor. Last month, the agent pronounced my fingerprint scans done after I watched little red boxes appear all over my scans on the monitor, only to receive a notice in the mail a week later telling me that my scans weren’t good enough and that I would have to go back today for the re-scan. So my husband and I did some homework and we asked professional fingerprint technicians about getting good fingerprints. We talked to a private fingerprinting business, Kirkland Police and Seattle Police and they all said to use a little bit of Corn Huskers Lotion and that that is what they use when someone has dry hands. The trick, they told us, is not too apply too much lotion because it will fill the ridges of the fingerprints. So today, although the agent observed that I have really dry hands, it seemed like it went better because I didn’t see the red boxes on the scans on the monitor. So, now we wait to see if we get another notice in the mail next week.
