Scott Marshall, who was winner of Season 4’s competitive tattoo artist show Ink Master on Spike TV, died last Saturday at the age of 41.

‘Ink Master’ Season 4 Winner Scott Marshall Dies

News broke of his death when his wife, Johanna, revealed that he had passed away in his sleep on Saturday night. His wife has stated that Marshall had called her on Saturday night to say that he could not drive home from his tattoo shop in Chicago and that he would sleep in a hotel to get some rest. She found out about the death of her husband when two police officers informed her of his death on Sunday morning. Preliminary autopsy reports have read that his death was caused by heart-related problems. “Spike and entire Ink Master family are stunned and saddened by the news of Scott’s passing,” Spike TV said in a statement. “He was a great competitor and talented artist. Our deepest condolences go out to the Marshall family and friends.”

Marshall appeared on Ink Master in February 2014 and had won the competition in an all-skill challenge which led to him winning $100,000 as the grand prize and being on the front cover for Inked Magazine.

He is survived by his wife and three children.
