Picture of my Reo Grand ecig wear and tear after a year of use

Update: Click here to see my new LP SL Reo Grand. 

Update My new Reo. I also wrapped this one with carbon fiber and it looks much better now. 
After having bad luck when I first started using the Reo Grand, out of the 5 mods I have, I use the Reo Grand every day. This is what it looks like now.


 It is way different then back when it was new (without filter). Just curious is using a mode till the aluminum wears off into you skin is bad for you? Should I wrap it in something or get it laminated?
