"The winner will be known Tuesday," Marshall said. "The three finalists will present their pieces and judges will critique them."

An independent artist affiliated with Roselle Tattoo Co., Marshall is one of the remaining three of 17 tattoo artists from around the country who have competed for the title in 12 weekly episodes that began airing Feb. 25.

The weekly episodes were prerecorded, but Marshall has flown to New York City for the live finale in which he reveals the tattoo he created on a "living canvas" over five, 7-hour sessions. Marshall said he did the work over several months so the recipient could heal between tattoo sessions.

"They call it open canvas, meaning there are no limitations to what you can and can't do," he said. "I believe I will win."
