Can bulging great saphenous veins (and other leg veins) be normal in skinny people?

I'm a 19 year old male. I am very skinny (I guess around 8% body fat) and I have very palpable and visible great saphenous veins. They are straight (not twisting), colorless to very light blue, and rather firm. They run from my mid-thigh all the way to my feet. Branches of the vein are also palpable and visible. I have had this all my life, but now it's more extreme. Veins in arms are the same but less firm. There's discomfort in legs during hot weather, but no swelling or color change.
