Literary Tattoos: The Perks of Being a Wallflower Stephen Chbosky

Sam tapped her hand on the steering wheel. Patrick held his hand outside the car and made air waves. And I just sat between them. After the song finished, I said something.

“I feel infinite.”

And Sam and Patrick looked at me like I said the greatest thing they ever heard. Because the song was that great and because we all really paid attention to it. Five minutes of a lifetime were truly spend, and we felt young in a good way.”

- Excerpt from The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

    i read the book soon after it came out and it's stayed with me since. i'd planned on getting the tattoo for a long time, but it took me having my own 'charlie moment' to decide that it needed to be done right then.

    artists like to tell me it's going to fade and become illegible, but the piece is almost three years old and shows no signs of change just yet.

    I absolutely loved this book! I recommended it to professor and he is using it to teach Spanish speaking students english.

    Love it! I'm planning on for my next tat to get "And in that moment, I swear we were infinite.." on my forearm. Great book.

  4. Lyzzy says

    I love this so much. My best friend and I want to get "And in that moment, I swear we were infinite." as a momentum for our everlasting friendship.
