putting lots of pressure on the area where blood is drawn right after it happens helps a lot with the bruising and soreness.

bruise is blood under the skin, keep it from leaking out of the hole the needle made, no bruise. push on the cotton swab for about a minute or two after they draw and you shouldn't get one at all, unless they were hunting for the vein quite a bit. tip from a guy who got stuck for two weeks straight in a class =).
