    Im a carpet and upholstery cleaner and i would reccommend some sort of non volatile solvent which will bring it straight off
    look in yellow pages for a local carpet cleaner and see if they will dab it for you

    AVOID ALL DIY cleaners as to clean correctly you need to be extracting the muck out
    seat may look clean first off after a DIY clean but if they havnt been cleaned with and extraction method they will get muckier far quicker as the seat will act like a magnet for muck due to the sticky residue the cleaner leaves behind

    imagine putting shampoo in your hair to clean it and not rinsing it out and letting it dry naturally it would get filthy and you would get dreadlocks!!

    Cheers... Just tried using hair spray... Pretty much all gone, going to see what it looks like when it dries fully but spraying and dabbing brought it out and made the ink stick to the cloth i was using - even tho fully dried in!

    Google also said toothpaste and WD40 but i've gone with the less messiest 1st...

    HAIRSPRAY what does hair spray do when it dries? it sets hard
    wait and see what a mess it looks in 3 months when it has attracted all the muck
    lets hope you havnt taken any colour out of the fabric it allready looks slightly lighter on your pic where you attempted stain removal before

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Permanent_marker

    Removal
    These markers are generally not truly permanent as, on most surfaces, they do not stain but form a surface layer that can be removed by high pressure cleaning or paint thinning solvents such as acetone, and they will eventually wear away over time. Some markers are designed to be long lasting, for instance by having two inks, one specialized to resist solvents, and one specialized not to fade.[citation needed] These are primarily used in graffiti and can be available in refillable form.[citation needed] A permanent marker can also be removed using a dry erase marker on certain surfaces such as a whiteboard as it contains acetone. An alcohol-based product (such as aftershave) and some paper towel is also effective in removing permanent marker. Simply apply the alcohol and wash clean with the paper towel. It should be noted that it works better on smooth, hard surfaces like polished wood, tile and linoleum.
