I was reading a book.. little black book of tattooing...the author stated that mags are to be ran backward, pulled in the direction of the back of the tube...is this correct or incorrect. I have not read this anywhere else prior to reading this book. Thanks

i think you can use a mag in any direction,as long as you are gentle.
