I find it interesting that nobody that knows for sure has posted.....

Quote from memory alpha:

Oxygenated Klingon blood usually appears red in a Class M atmosphere, however in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, Klingon blood appears pink/violet in one scene. It is also possible that Klingon blood is "canonically" pink in color, because of what Colonel Worf said in The Undiscovered Country regarding the difference in Klingon blood compared to Human blood (after Colonel West, disguised as a Klingon, was shot down). On the other hand, with the sole exception of Star Trek VI, Klingon blood has always been red in every instance that it has been shown, including in Star Trek III: The Search for Spock, Star Trek Generations and multiple episodes of all of the Star Trek television series

if Vulcan blood is copper biased than it would be blue so Andorians might have copper biased blood but not Vulcans

The only problem with Klingons having lead based blood would be that it's toxic to people. I've never heard Klingon blood being toxic. Maybe it is an iron/cobalt mixture.
