Pigmented white leather


My parents bought a white (artificial) leather massage table about a year ago. It was rarely ever used and now they decided to sell it. But here is our problem:
Unfortunately they love red. And so they covered it with a red sheet. Wen uncovered, it released the surprise: the red paint from the sheet has penetrated deep into the white leather. Just so you get an idea of what I am talking about:

We are desperate. We have tried everything to get the red pigment out. From olive oil, hair spray, some german "Universal-lederbalsam" we were told it's gonna work (and ofcourse didn't) and other leather destroying substances I would rather not talk about. I don't realy think there is a solution to this, but it's worth trying. So I'm asking you:

Is there ANY way to make it white again? Or is our only option dying it pink and sell it as a "Barbie massage table"?

Thank you verry much.

Will that work? I mean ofcourse we thought about it, but we didn't belive white can cover red.

Does anybody has experience with dying somethig like that into a brighter color? Maybe if we comletely depigment the table first and then dye it, is that possible?

Thank you very much.
