Bruise turns purple after hitting it, is tender. Is this blood vessels?

I cut my ring finger knuckle by a crystal glass breaking when washing up about a month ago. It sliced it open and bled for a while. I managed to clean it up and bandage it without stitches. It has healed on surface very well but every time I seem to hit that area or knock it the knuckle it turns purple and is a little tender. Is this the blood vessels and will this go away?
