How easily do you bruise? Are you the type that can take a huge physical blow without any noticeable mark being left, or do you 'bruise like a banana?'

It depends. I used to find bruises on my shins and wonder where the heck they came from. Now I'm not as easy to bruise, though. Heck, the last real bruise I had (aside from one on my knee which I don't know where it came from) was months ago from having someone pretty much attack me haha.
But yeah. I don't bruise easily anymore.

I guess I haven't been bruised enough to know, which is a good thing. Haven't had a physical injury in awhile, and from what I remember, my bruises usually don't show up unless it's more severe.

I don't really easily, unless I get a cut or something lol.
But I do some mixed martial arts, so I get some bruises now and then, but they're not visible.

I bruise very easily. My skin is somewhat pale and it's also very sensitive.

I get bruises on my legs often. When walking around a high school hallway with 3000 students, you're guaranteed to get pushed around and ran into.

Most of my bruises appear without me noticing. I'm just gonna guess and say they're from hitting my legs on tables as I walk by, stuff like that, y'know?
But it seems whenever I take a big hit, I don't bruise as easily vs. when I just stub my toe or something stupid. I'm weird.

It depends what causes the bruise to appear, take me up to 10 minutes to 2 hours to show up, for me takes longer to go away (side effect of diabetes, cuts and bruises take 2 to 3 times longer to heal)

I don't bruise easily at all. Heck, the last time I remember being bruised was 2 or 3 years ago now.

I'm not too sure how easily I bruise to be honest. But I do know that I sometimes get bruises and am never sure where exactly they came from, and if I get a bit enough hit I do bruise.

I think I'm in between, I don't really bruise easily or able to take a blow without bruising xD

I cracked my knee a few weeks ago, and it took about a week to completely heal, though I think I have a broken bone still in there somewhere, so maybe it isn't completely healed after all...
But I don't really think I bruise easily? And when I do, I heal quickly, thank goodness~

I have pretty pale skin, and having a very rough brother means I do get bruised a lot.

I bruise really easily. I think I have about 5 or so bruises on my butt and legs right now

I bruise too easily, I think. I'll hit things just barely sometimes, and that somehow results in a big bruise that lasts forever. Guess that's just the side effects of being so pale. That's what I've been told, at least.

I think I bruise quite easily: I'm not too sure as I haven't had a bruise in quite a while. I can understand the color of the bruise, but when it heals it goes yellow? I wonder why it just doesn't disappear?

Pretending to be the customer for several toddlers playing barbers with blocks definitely results in some bruising, and I'm sensitive. I've just counted seven visible bruises on my whole body. I clearly live on the edge.

I probably bruise like a banana. It's pretty common for me to have one. The problem is, I'll see bruises and have no idea what I did to cause it in the first place. brb, dying of bruises.
On the other hand, I've fallen on the ice on both legs, yet no marks. I don't get it. o___O

Meh,no more then normal I guess.
The last bruise I remember taking notice to was from a skateboarding fail. (Landed square on my knee) It was only there for two or three days though. (I heal quickly)
I do a lot of really stupid stuff,and quite a few rather physical things too, but never really pay attention to whether something bruised or not. :/

Not as often as I used too bruise, when I younger I bruised like anything and they lasted for a week at a time. Now I only bruise for like a day or two.

I guess I get bruised often due to my unfortunate habit of running into things all the time, sometimes I get bruises I dont even remember I got ;-;

I don't usually bruise all that easily, but the other day I was at a friend's house and he noticed this huge bruise on my leg the size of Angola. I didn't feel it and to this day I have no idea how it got there lmao.

I bruise relatively easily, someone could punch me in the arm and there'd be a bruise. :/

The only time I bruise is when I don't know how the heck it happened. Like this morning, I woke up with a golf-ball sized bruise on my thigh, but I can't for the life of me remember how I got it (I can only assume it was at work). Yet, if I get banged or hit by something and it really hurt, rarely do I end up with a bruise.

I rarely get any bruises, scars, or any damage to my physical appearance. One reason to this is because I take really good care of myself.

I think I bruise easily. During football season my arms were always bruised up. I'd have at least 4 bruises in each arm and they would last for about a week. Once my body got used to the hitting I didn't suffer any more bruises for the rest of the season.
