Naturally dark or tail rot?

Hi all! I just got my beardie (tequila) about a month ago and have been noticing more that his tail is pretty dark. I know this can be natural coloring but I’m not sure if it is tail rot or not. He hasn’t been bitten from what I’ve seen (I work in the pet store I got him from nor by crickets as I watch him eat). If someone could just let me know I’d appreciate it! Thanks!!

That is a normal pigmentation on the tail tip. It may be looking like it is possibly going to
shed on that area?
There definitely isn't any tail rot though. Nice looking dragon, very colorful!
