It looks like it might actually be.
There is some home remedies you could try i think, but personally being that close to the end of the tail, and the potential for infection i would probably take him/her to the vet and have the end removed. Looks like you caught it early so an amputation would probably heal with no farther issues.
I'll flag a coulpe people that know more about it than me though.

Im not an expert by no means, so i could be wrong. AHBD or Drache613 should be more definitive.

Yes it is, sometimes it will fall off on it's own but it's much better to have it amputated a little ways past the visible wound to prevent it from spreading. It's not a major surgery and beardies do very well with it, they don't feel much pain in their tail. Some people even do a small one like that themselves with a very sharp pair of sterilized scissors, betadine and non pain relief Neosporin. A vet can do it more safely though and your beardie shouldn't even need to be put under.

Thank you, and yes to be safer I’ll be taking him to the vet.

Can beardies eat Mustard Greens? Hope so I bought some along with some Cilantro. Needed to try something different. He won't eat his broccoli or cauliflower he used it eat it. So I thought I'd give it a try.

My female bearded dragon has recently started gasping for air all the time. She can’t get sleep or really do anything because she has such a difficult time breathing. I think it might be a RI but I’m not completely sure. Any thoughts?
