Beats burning your fingertips on a stove for sure. Will xpost to f/illegalism.

hmm... idk about this. for some people, its useful information. at the shitty retail job i currently work, we need a fingerprint record just to clock in and out, which... sucks. I'd probably not do this myself but hey... as long as people know the risks and rewards shrug

I've heard from others that most people can achieve the same effect of reducing the prominence of fingerprints by just moisturizing your hands twice a day. This will, instead of caustically scarring your hands and etching damage into the prints, cause the lipids in the moisturizer to "fill in" the prints.

Haven't tried it, but I think that bears some investigation before one bleaches their fingers. Plus, it's amusingly bougie

Are there any adverse affects on your health that come with repeatedly exposing your skin to bleach (besides eroding fingerprints)?
