On June 25th, a report by Mary Jo Denton posted to the website of the Herald Citizen chronicled the discovery of personal information at the dump, evidently discarded when a local tattoo parlor conducted a spring cleaning.  According to the report, the papers included copies of release forms the tattoo business required its clients to sign, giving their names, addresses, ages, dates of birth, description and location of their tattoos, their signatures—and even photo copies of their driver’s licenses.
