Pour rubbing alcohol on stain and let set. With some luck, the ink was only absorbed by the wear layer and the ink will lift the stain. Wipe with paper towel. Because vinyl is porous and absorbent, the stain may be permanent.

Alcohol is the best solvent for ink. If it doesn't remove the ink, that says the ink penetrated the wear layer of the tile and cannot be removed. The only solution would then be to replace that section of floor.
