I would say mainly cappilaries, as they are less resistant. But all can be damaged according to which part is bruised and the force you apply.

A bruise is usually at the capillary level just because they're so much smaller and easier to damage. But depending on the force of the injury, larger vessels can be damaged as well.

You can get a bruise after getting an IV, for example, in a large vein from the vein leaking into the surrounding tissue.
