Tile with Clawfoot Tub in Bathroom

I am currently working on a small bathroom in a home built in 1925. The original claw foot bathtub is still there but has had a wooden frame built around it then tiled with some sort of plastic tile. I have removed the frame and am going to leave the tub exposed. I am planning to lay a marble tile down on the floor, my question is can I move the tub to tile then get it back into place, or should I lay the tile around the feet of the tub?? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Do not tile around the feet. Move the tub.

What type of subfloor is there? If wooden, then the subfloor needs to meet deflection calculations first. Joists spacing, joist size, and unsupported span go into this calculation.
