Walter “Sausage” Frank and “Ink Master” Season 4 winner Scott Marshall didn’t get along on the Spike show, but after Marshall’s untimely death, it seems that any ill will has been forgotten. Sausage tweeted sympathetically Tuesday and shared a GoFundMe Page for his television rival Wednesday. 

Sausage captioned an image of Marshall and downplayed their rivalry. "Even though we had differences... Scott is an amazing dad & a phenomenal artist. You'll be missed," he wrote.  The next day, he shared the fundraiser, which states: "All donations will go directly to Johanna Marshall and their 3 children." Sausage tweeted, “Check+it+out,” along with the link.

The GoFundMe page has a goal of raising $20,000 for Marshall’s family. “Those of us who knew him, knew Scott for his quick sense of humor, his beautiful art and his non-stop energy,” the page, created Tuesday by Jackie Rubino, read. “This page was created for his friends in the tattoo community and fans to help his family through this devastating and unexpected loss.”


Within a day of being created, the memorial fund had raised $3, 530 from 40 donors. “I am starting this page for the family… and as soon as Johanna is up to it will transfer management of the page over to her,” the creator wrote. “Please share this page and keep Scott's family in your thoughts in this tragic time.”

It’s unknown if the page is authentic. Marshall lived near Chicago with his family, and the GoFundMe page was created in Saint James, New York.

Marshall reportedly died in his sleep after suffering from a heart problem, TMZ wrote Tuesday. The exact cause of death is unknown. Late Saturday evening he called his wife to say he wasn’t well enough to drive home from his tattoo shop in Roselle, Illinois, and paid for a hotel room. The next day, two police officers told Johanna Marshall died.

The exact cause of death has not been revealed and remains under investigation. Foul play is not suspected.

This is a developing story.

To tattoo fans, Scott Marshall was the F-bombingly cocky winner of Season 4 of Spike TV’s “Ink Master.”

But his wife said she and his children remember the Glendale Heights native as a loving father and husband. “He knew how to make each one of those kids just shine,” Johanna Marshall said. “This man was such a beautiful soul. I knew I could feel the love — not just him saying he loved me.”

She was notified of his death Sunday night, at a Roselle hotel, by police in the west suburb. He worked at Roselle Tattoo Company. On Saturday, he’d told her he wasn’t feeling well, so she told him to stay at a hotel rather than drive the 40 miles to their home in a far southwest suburb.

“He just went to sleep and didn’t wake up,” said Johanna Marshall, who was married to him for 11 years.

“It was heart failure,” said his brother, Christopher. “We never knew about it.”

He didn’t engage in risky or unhealthy habits, Johanna Marshall said. “It was very unexpected. A very unexpected loss.”

The DuPage County coroner’s office was awaiting autopsy results.

Mr. Marshall, 41, grew up in Glendale Heights. His artistic talent showed by the time he went to Glenside Middle School, his brother said.

“He did an art competition for a plumbing company looking for a logo, fifth or sixth grade, and won second place,” Christopher Marshall said.

Mr. Marshall went to Glenbard North High School, where he hung out with the headbangers.

“We had some pretty bad hairstyles,” his brother said.

Young Scott Marshall played in a band called Spacebug Thugs.

“He was a great drummer,” his brother said. “If it wasn’t for the tattooing, he could have easily been a professional musician. Scott would make the backdrop, airbrush everything and create the posters for the shows.”

They liked to ride their bikes and hang out at Tommy’s Red Hots in “the Heights.”

He loved old-school metal such as Metallica, Motorhead and Pantera. They went to see the band Rush so often they lost count, his brother said. Lately, he liked a Maryland band, Clutch.

In 1998, he graduated from Chicago’s American Academy of Art. A year later, he got his first tattoo. “Once he realized he could do it and was good at it, it just came alive from then on,” Christopher Marshall said.

Scott Marshall met his future wife when she came in to Roselle Tattoo for a design she said she treasures.

“He’s just a very good-looking guy, and we started talking and laughed,” Johanna Marshall said.

She told him she wanted a sword going through a rose, and he inked one on her leg.

In a video biography that introduced him to the “Ink Master” audience, he stressed his virtuosity and versatility.

“I do all types of tattooing. I like traditional, Japanese, portraits, black-and-gray,” he said. “You can put five traditional tattoos in a pile, and you’re going to know which one is mine in any category. . . .I’m very competitive. . . .They’d better bring their A game because I’m going to.”

His brash persona wasn’t what he was like in real life, said Jim Francis of Milwaukee Ink, a fellow “Ink Master” competitor.

“He loved his wife,” Francis said. “He loved his kids. He loved having fun and laughing all the time.”

“Ink Master” host Dave Navarro tweeted condolences Tuesday to the Marshalls, saying, “I am very sad to report that Inkmaster and friend Scott Marshall has passed away.”

“Spike and entire Ink Master family are stunned and saddened by the news of Scott’s passing,” Spike TV officials said. “He was a great competitor and talented artist. Our deepest condolences go out to the Marshall family and friends.”

Mr. Marshall is also survived by another brother, Jeffrey; his children, Nadya and Abrielle; a stepson, Victor; and his parents, Beverly and Gregory Marshall.

‘Ink Master’ Winner Scott Marshall Dies at 41

Spike TV’s “Ink Master” season four winner Scott Marshall died this weekend in Chicago. He was 41.

His wife, Johanna, told TMZ, which first reported the news, that police officers informed her Sunday that Scott died in his sleep, and that preliminary autopsy results show that the cause of death was heart-related.

Johanna said Scott called her from his Chicago tattoo shop, Roselle Tattoo Co., Saturday night and told her that he was not feeling well enough to make the drive home, and went to a hotel nearby. His death remains under investigation.

Scott appeared on the Spike TV competition show starting in February 2014 and took home the $100,000 grand prize after beating out fellow tattoo artists Walter “Sausage” Frank and Matti Hixson in an all-skill challenge. He would go on to be featured in Inked magazine for his win.

“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.”

“We’re tremendously saddened by the passing of Scott Marshall, a vibrant, creative spirit and talent who will be missed by the entire ‘Ink Master’ family,” said Original Media, which produces the show, in a statement. “We extend our deepest condolences to his family and friends.”

Along with his wife, Scott is survived by their three young children.

LIVE Season 4 Finale: Scott Marshall Is Crowned Season 4's Ink Master

Autopsy: 'Ink Master' tattoo artist died of heroin overdose

Tattoo artist Scott Marshall won Season 4 of Spike TV's "Ink Master" reality competition last year.

An autopsy has determined that Scott Marshall, a tattoo artist and a winner of the "Ink Master" reality show, died of a heroin overdose, according to DuPage County Chief Deputy Coroner Charlie Dastych.

Marshall, 41, was found dead Oct. 25 at the Holiday Inn Express, 1490 W. Lake St., in Roselle, according to police. Marshall's wife, Johanna, told TMZ that Marshall got the hotel room because he wasn't feeling well enough to drive from his job at the Roselle Tattoo Co. to their home in Plainfield.

The cause of death was intoxication from heroin and benzodiazepine, which can be used to relax muscles, Dastych said. The coroner's office submitted its findings to Roselle police late last month, he said.

Roselle Deputy Chief Roman Tarchala said police are still working on the case.

Tribune calls to Marshall's family were not returned. A man who answered the phone at Roselle Tattoo on Thursday said shop employees were not speaking to the media.

Marshall beat out 16 tattoo artists on Season 4 of Spike TV's "Ink Master" in 2014 to win $100,000 and a feature in Inked magazine.

"Everybody the last three years told me I should try out for the show," Marshall told the Tribune last year. "I was like most tattoo artists who say, 'I'll never go on those tattoo shows, blah, blah, blah.' People say these things because they're not pushing themselves or don't have the opportunity.

"I looked inward and said if I had the chance to do that, I think it would be great to compete on that level. It got to the point where I felt like it was my destiny to win it from the time I went on my first casting call (in Detroit) until I won it."
