After sitting in a metal chair with a diamond pattern, my BF got a bruise on his back/butt in the pattern of the chair's holes. Is it a blood problem?

In brief: Bruising from chair

Anyone can get minor bruising from a metal chair with a diamond mesh-like pattern.
It can happen more easily if someone took aspirin or ibuprofen recently. A blood problem would only be a concern if the bruising was extreme, if the person is taking a blood thinner like warfarin, or if there is a family history of blood problems like hemophilia.
