Removing ink from jeans. Assistance please :)

I bought a pair of RR's today that had an blue ink stain on the leg. It's about the size of a dime. I was told by the sales associate that it was likely from a security tag. The jeans are a medium blue wash and the stain isn't too noticeable but I would like to try and get rid of it. The good part is they were marked 75% off because of the stain and I got them for like $65 Canadian.

Is there any method to remove this type of stain or do I have to live with it?

Thanks!

I've had luck with hairspray. Spray it on the stain. Wash.

I had this problem a few months ago. Black permanent marker on a pair of light wash jeans.

I used 100% alcohol (rubbing alcohol should also work, as should the acetone in nail polish remover and hairspray). I soaked some filter paper (anything sturdy and absorbent should work) and blotted out the stain. Be careful to blot it and not smear it, otherwise you will spread the mark. I was successful in getting out about 95% of it.

I've used 100% alcohol as well. Also make sure you have something underneath the stain (like a thick wad of paper towel) while you are blotting so the ink doesn't soak through to the other side.

alcohol definitely works. I got permanent marker (sharpie) stain that was about the size of a dollar bill out of fabric with alcohol.
