Tab-mail that I made using a combination of can tabs and metal rings, in this case the rings are anodized aluminum. The close-ups are shown from the back (or you can call it the inside) and the tabs are layered so that the sharp edges from breaking them off the cans will not make contact with, and thus not shred, your clothes.  The artwork is 8-bit, made only with factory colored tabs as they come off the cans, meaning None of the tabs were painted.  The motif is a dragon wrapped around a rounded symbol.  The red dragon wraps around a solid green star, the blue dragon wraps around a fire symbol that fades from red to orange to gold.  Each took about two weeks of working on them for a few hours each day.

A man in the grocery store line today approached me and said, “Sir, when I first saw you I was extremely attracted to you, but then I noticed that you are a boy. How… I mean, why do you dress so provocatively?”
I responded, “Well, in today’s world the majority of the straight male race view women as objects, or something that belongs to them. I dress provocatively because it attracts the attention of men in a sexual and OBJECTIVE way. However, when realized that I am actually male, they often become confused, disgusted, upset or all of the above. By inflicting this minor emotional damaged upon the ego of a man raised by twisted societal gender norms, maybe, just maybe the individual will think twice before viewing another woman with an objective attitude and sense of belonging. No woman, belongs to ANYONE. Male or female, the equality of human beings needs to be a priority. It is something worth dressing up for.”
I AM NOT KIDDING. The woman behind me, the female cashier, the old lady bagging groceries and the woman in front of me who was talking on the phone STOPPED, …. and proceeded to gasp and clap. The man shook my hand, told me to have a blessed day and then said, “excuse me ladies, I need to visit my daughter.”
…. I was shaking by the time I walked out of the store.
