    I’d try rubbing alcohol. Works good ball point pin ink.

    Hand sanitizer and a clean dry cloth.

    Blot with rubbing alcohol. Gently rub with clean cloth. You may have to wait and repeat. Last summer my son had a broken pen in is back pocket when he sat on the leather seat in my car. I used rubbing alcohol on it but it took three attempts to get it all the way up. Good luck.

    Try some rubbing alcohol. That usually does the trick. Try it in an inconspicuous spot to test it out first.

    Put the rubbing alcohol on the end of a Q-tip, squeeze out and wipe with a tissue (so it is just damp) and then just roll it over the precise marked area. Don't slop it on.

      I am glad you suggested a Q-tip. I had to scrub a bit because rolling wasn't doing anything. It did take off some leather color. The next spot I had I decided to not scrub and followed wiping off with a leather cleaner/conditioner. It lightened the ink enough to live with. Thanks for your help.
