Pinched fingers emoji SVG

An emoji showing the fingers held together in a vertical orientation, often referred to as the Italian hand gesture ma che vuoi, sometimes called the "finger purse." In Italy this gesture tends to be used in disagreement, frustration, or disbelief and can mean “What do you want?” or “What are you saying?” Outside Italy anyone performing a caricature of an Italian person, regardless of context or tone, might use this gesture. Pinched Fingers has a variety of other culturally specific uses. In Israeli culture it can mean “hold on,” “relax,” or “be patient.” The K-Pop star Yuri uses it as a signature gesture to represent a dumpling and a general warm sentiment. It can also be used to represent the act of fisting. Not to be confused with 🤏 Pinching Hand, which has overlapping senses. Both are used to represent precision when someone is making a sharp point with accompanying speech. Pinched Fingers was approved as part of Unicode 13.0 in 2020 and added to Emoji 13.0 in 2020.

Use this emoji in your website

You can add the pinched fingers emoji to your website in a few ways. The first way is by using the unicode character, the emoji itself. This has the advantage of rendering immediately and it doesn't require any additional network requests. However, emoji characters don't always scale well and they are inconsistent across platforms.

The second way is by using the emoji's HTML character reference, which has the same advantages and disadvantages of using the emoji itself.

<p>Here is my emoji: &#x1f90c;</p>
