Tile up to bathtub or under ??

Hi all , first post here. Looks like alot of good info being given so I though I'd ask you guys a couple qustions on tiling around a 45" X 65" jacuzzi bathtub. I'm using 6x6 ceramic tiles and wasn't sure if I should tile up to the sides of the bathtub or trace the tub and take it out(not yet hooked up) and tile a 1/4 or 1/2" past the trace line and then put the tub back in on top of the tile. Dont want the tiles to pop up or crack so what do you guys think would be better. Thanks for looking.

Hey register on up and how about giving us a name.
I would set the tile and drop the tub down on top of it.

Welcome aboard, Kory.

Either way, actually. Most times the tub has already been set when the tile setter arrives on the job.
