Default great idea??? hard to tell

so i was smoking my KM trimetal chiller with some friends and i thought of an idea...i cant tell if it would look good or not(i also dont want to not take care of it) but i was wondering if you let the brass tarnish(with a little help. im guessing salt/sodium is what causes it) would it look good/unique if it turned that greenish color of the statue of liberty....any thoughts?

definately unique but doesn't sound like a good idea to me. I like mine clean and shiney.

salt is corrossive and will do your shisha no favor. Bad idea!

If you want to give it some character, just use it every day and don't polish it.
Pretty soon that brass will have a patina on it worthy of the Antiques Road Show.

Thanks for the replies. I was just curious. It almost seems like child neglect lol. I agree I like to keep my KM looking brand new

well the brass elements would not turn green, brass just gets dull and dark. The copper elements would, after a while, patina but I still think it might look weird because the stainless would still be shiny... Maybe if you had an all copper hookah?
