At DNA 11 we love having the opportunity to let our clients personalize the color of their DNA portraits…  No two DNA portraits are identical after all!

With the Fingerprint Portraits and  Kiss Portraits you can choose custom colors online, but with the DNA Portraits, our in-house designers work directly with our clients to create custom colors, based on swatches or Pantone colors they provide us.

The photos below are just two of the customized portraits that the team has created.


This was a totally custom job we did for our friend. A very special one-of-a-kind job from the early days of DNA 11. It took over 4 months to complete and he was involved at every stage of the design process.


This custom color combination started with inspiration from one of our standard colors. It was customized with the help of the DNA 11 designers.

Do you have a custom color combination in mind for a DNA portrait?

No two people share the same fingerprint. Identical twins do not even have the same fingerprints, even though they share the same genetic DNA.

Fingerprints begin developing when ridges are formed on the outermost layer of skin, on your fingertips. The ridges form a pattern that is your unique fingerprint.

These ridges are developed during weeks 20 to 24 of gestation and will not changes as a person ages. Your fingerprint will change in size but the patterns the ridges that are formed will remain the same from infancy to adulthood.


The unique identifiers come from the varying number, and spacing of the ridges, even though everyone can be classified into three categories or patterns.

  • The Loop –   (65% of all people)
  • The Whorl – (30% of all people)
  • The Arch –   (   5% of all people)

Wondering what category or pattern you fit into?
