Artistic Expressions of FTM Top Surgery

My partner (yes, I think I’ve settled on that word now) recently passed along the link to this blog, which I then decided to pass along to all of you. It’s a site dedicated to various artistic interpretations of the themes, images, thoughts, emotions, etc. of top surgery. For those of you that don’t know what top surgery is, you can go ahead and learn about it here. This blog features some really amazing pieces, but I’ve posted my favorite below.
