Sometimes I'm writing on meta and would like to use the method [tag: + tagname + ] to link to a tag on the main site but that construct links to a tag on the meta site.

Is there a way to do what I want and link from the meta site to the main site for a particular tag?

By default [tag:] always links to main site tags.

As an aside, on the first few days after the markup [tag:…] was introduced, it indeed linked to meta when used on meta. As YOU wrote, now this markup links to the main site even when used on meta. From this page:
