Telling everyone to use the tip of their finger is like telling someone to drive your car without adjusting the mirrors or the seat.
This all depends on the size of your hand and the size of the grip. If you have already developed a comfortable trigger pull that does not affect your point-of-aim, I would say stick with it. Hand size, finger length, musculature and gun ergonomics all bear on this and it is too hard to have an absolute rule that covers it.
