The number of mass disasters in Indonesia has increased in recent years, both caused by nature and by human negligence. The importance of the role of identification has been regulated in Law no. 36 of 2009 article 118, the first paragraph, that every doctor must be willing to assist the victim identification process if requested by the investigator. Lip print is a pattern in the form of gaps or fissures found on the surface of the lip mucosa. The study of lip print patterns is called Cheiloscopy. Lip prints are used for individual identification because they have unique and stable properties. Lip prints have many advantages that can be used in forensic identification.
