As I was looking up some more 이색카페 (unique cafe) locations in Seoul, I found a “finger print art” cafe near Konkuk University Station.
HOW IT WORKS
Step 1– Sit down at a table with a menu and look at your options. They also have drinks, food, a Turkish coffee making set, and a mug designing set.
Step 2– Tell the staff that you are interested in the fingerprint art. Choose the Single or Couple set.
Single Set (35,000 KRW): One A3-sized frame, two Fingerprint art base designs, and one Americano
Couple Set (40,000 KRW): Two A3-sized frames, three Fingerprint art base designs, and two Americanos
Even if you are two people, you can choose to get the Single Set. My friend and I didn’t need too many frames so we got the Single Set, and added the price for another drink.
Step 3– Choose the base designs that you would like to use.
Step 4– Use colored pencils and your fingerprints to decorate the picture! Make sure to wipe your fingers on the wet towel before changing ink colors.
Step 5– When you are finished, ask the staff to have it placed in a frame. You can choose a black frame or a white frame.

Details of the Turkish Coffee Making with an Ibrik
(need a reservation: give a preferred date and time by phone)
You will see a store called Juicy (which is quite popular in Korea these days), and it will be on the second floor. The stairs are located on the left side the ice cream store.
If you walk down further on that street, you will see the Common Ground shopping complex on your right.
