Usually red or black: Kaposi is full of blood so should be red to black in color.

Kaposi : Yes it can depending on how much blood is inside it. Also as it heals it can turn darker. As a rule the more new blood that is inside the lesions the lighter reddish pink it will be. If it goes deeper it can be more purple especially if it is larger and has nodules on it. As a rule if it is changing you should see your md to have it looked at.
