"I certainly have"

There are many reasons why, you will get a bruise after having a blood test, to be completed honest with you, a small bruise about the size of a pee or smaller will probably appear on your forearm, as your skin, (young or older) has been inserted by a smaller needle, which is then inserted into your vein to obtain your blood, there could also be a number of other factors, why a bruise (Hematoma ) appears, such as:-

Having a poorly trained person carrying out your Blood Test

The procedure being Rushed

Not locating the vein correctly

Going through the vein & hitting a Nerve - oouch!!
