ANSWER #1 of 5

I think they usually do the left arm, most people are right handed...
But I've had this problem before, usually if you ask for a specific arm, or present a specific arm they'll take that arm (if they find a vein)
I wouldnt worry about it...
Even if they see the scars they dont usually react. I've had this done several times by several different people, and none of them have ever reacted to scars (or even fresh cuts...)

ANSWER #2 of 5

I have noticed that they take blood from the arm that has a vein that is easier to get to. A while back I went to get my blood taken and I had cut all up and down my arms but no one said anything and I didn't get into trouble. If that is something you're worried about than don't be. =)
