✍️ Writing Hand

Emoji Meaning

A hand holding a pen or pencil and writing. Most often shown as holding either a blue or black pen, though Microsoft's design has a red pen. LG's design displays a left hand, while all other platforms show a right hand. Used broadly to represent writing.

Also used between words to show that a lesson is being learned and to indicate someone is taking notes. For example, ✍️look✍️both✍️ways✍️before✍️you✍️cross✍️the✍️street. This use was popularized in TikTok comments. It uses the established practice of placing emojis between words for emphasis. Possibly influenced by the emphatic use of 👏 Clapping Hands, which reflects speech-gesture pairings in Black English in the United States.

Writing Hand was approved as part of Unicode 1.1 in 1993 and added to Emoji 1.0 in 2015.
