I'm starting to see more and more blue veins through my skin...?

They are not varicose veins, I looked at pictures of varicose veins. But I am seeing blue veins in my thighs and forearms. They don't stick out at all. I am just a little concerned b/c I have pretty tan skin (I'm half black) so I don't think I should be able to see these veins. Any one have similar experience or know what's going on? Thanks!!

Have you lost weight recently. Prominent veins is a sign of low body fat. At your age, your baby fat should be pretty much gone by now and that's why you're probably just beginning to notice.
