I would test the water to see if it's safe. If so, you can add the fish back in.

Ink will not be affecting the ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, hardness, or PH of he water so the most common testing kits will virtually never be able to detect if the ink has released harmful substances, or materials in the water, which would leave testing the water virtually useless. as long as the ink hasn't stained any materials and isn't contained within the water you should be fine. cleaning any decorations that are visibly stained should be cleaned in a fairly easy process in which you scrub, and wash under hot water. if it is still in the water, it can easily be cleaned by doing a 100% water change

If there aren't any visual remnants and everything has been cleaned then placing the Betta in the tank should be okay
