Friends have paid tribute to a talented tattoo artist and father who died earlier this week.
Ben Seed's body was found at a house in Cliftonville but police said his death is not believed to be suspicious.

Friends and customers described him as a 'funny and sweet guy' and a 'great artist' in tributes shared online.
Rob McNally, one of his best mates, said: "I can't believe this has happened. Rest in peace brother. Still in shock."
One of his customers, Lisa Barnes-Wing, said he was a 'true gentleman' and had the tattoo he did as a reminder.
Mr Seed's body was found at a property in Ethelbert Crescent in the town at 5pm on Monday.
Pictures have been shared of Mr Seed's work on the Reaperz Facebook page in tribute to his work.
