You should always test a hidden spot with any cleaning agent or liquid that you plan on using. Take some patent leather shoe cleaner (you can find this in a shoe repair store, or you can also try using plain old rubbing alcohol), put it on a cotton swab and gently wipe at the ink mark. It should start lifting the color off. After you have removed as much as possible, wipe the area with a damp cloth, and then dry.

Try some rubbing alcohol. It may not take it of completely, but it should take most of it off. Good luck.
