REINVENTING THE TATTOO - Trivia Question #14

What causes less sking resistance, longer or shorter tapers?

Answer:  Longer tapered needles cause less skin resistance than shorter tapers.  Because of this, there is a noticeable difference in the power required to push a large magnum made of short-tapered needles through the skin than one made of long-tapered needles.
