You might be wondering how a fake finger is only related to criminal. This fake finger story has something to do with the past ritual that is called as yubitsume. During the ancient times it was said that if a gangster offends his superior there only one way to compensate that is by chopping off the last joint of the left little finger. But if the gangster does it again he has to cut off finger. Today, in Japan it is a sign of criminality and if a gangster leave the group it is really difficult for him getting honest job.

A big thanks to Yukako Fukushima and Shintaro Hayashi who initiated creating artificial body parts for victims of breast cancer or accidents. Though the Japan Government cracked down on the gangs, the two are getting more and more business from Japan’s criminals. Fake criminals can cost anywhere from $1000 to $5000. Made of silicone the fingers look natural.
