Who Was Noah Brady?
Noah Brady was a famous TikTok star with a massive following of over 300k followers on TikTok and over 20.6K on Instagram. The 21-year-old social media personality was known for his “tattooing videos” for his fans. He gained recognition for the first time in July 2021, when he posted the first video regarding the “tattooing challenge”.
In one of his Instagram videos, Noah created a beautiful scorpion on a girl’s thigh and engraved, “We against the world” below. On the other thigh, he made an artwork, with the caption, “no matter what”. His fans took to the comment section and expressed how badly they want to be tattooed by him.
One fan wrote, “I need a tat from you before I die one day! pls, and thank you.” Another wrote, “Come to LA buddy get me straight ?.” One wrote, “Dog do you take M30s before you film?. One wrote, “hahaha, you are dope dude!!! can’t wait for more!”
Since then, Noah managed to tattoo several things, including orange soda, record players, juice boxes and much more. Sadly, the guy known for his quirky personality and good vibes is no more! He passed away at the age of 21, leaving his fans shocked. The news of his death was confirmed by his family.
How Did Noah Die?
The news of Noah’s death was confirmed by his family. It has come out that the TikTok star committed suicide. His mother, Rena Smith Brady, took to Facebook to reveal the sad news and wrote:
“Sometimes you never know the pain behind someone’s smile. The front desk clerk at the hotel apologized and said “I’m sorry when he checked in about midnight I would have never guessed this outcome. He checked in smiling” That was Noah, he had the biggest and most contagious smile of anyone I know. He was kind. He was the life of the party. He was a friend to all and one of the least judgmental people I know. Those who know him know that he wasn’t the same person he portrayed on social media.”
His mother revealed that Noah constantly suffered from depression since 9th grade. However, it was last year in October that he openly spoke about his struggles with his family. “We tried everything we could in that short time to help him,” she said. However, his demons took away the best of him and he decided to give up on life.
“Last night I stayed up all night trying to talk him out of this. Unfortunately, 5:18 am was the last text I received from him. He had told me recently “No one should cry for me,” she added. “Be happy that I’m no longer in pain because I would never wish this on anyone.” Before rumors get started, he didn’t overdose,” his mother concluded.
Devastated fans took to social media to offer condolences and tribute to Noah. One user wrote: “I’m so grateful to have met u, Noah. I will never forget listening to Taylor swift together. Rest easy king.” Another wrote: “Genuinely TikTok won’t be the same. Rip I’m so sorry.” “Rest easy. Feels like yesterday when I followed your page at the start of your journey on it.” “Rest in peace Noah. you were the sweetest,” wrote another.
Noah’s mother also informed everyone that he didn’t overdose on drugs to take his life. Rena urged his fans to check on their loved ones and spread awareness of the importance of mental health. Our heart goes out to the family of this young star who left the world too soon.
