Is it true that skinny people tend to bruise easier when getting an IV?

Anonymous
One of my friends was telling me that they had a bad experience recently getting a surgical operation when they got the IV. She said that her hand was bruised and swollen I guess from how they put it in or had trouble finding a vein. She said probably because she's skinny. That doesn't make sense to me because I'd assume if you're thinner that it'd more than likely be easier to find your veins than say someone who is overweight?
