rust and stardust

This is Jessie’s Lolita tattoo.

Although the book was extremely creepy and uncomfortable to read in parts, the language was beautiful.

Literary Tattoos: Vladimir Nabokov Lolita

My car is limping, Dolores Haze,
And the last long lap is the hardest,
And I shall be dumped where the weed decays,
And the rest is rust and stardust.

- Excerpt from “Wanted” by Humbert in Vladimir Nabokov’s Lolita.  Read the whole poem here.
