Ink sacs were added to Minecraft in early 2011, at the same time as squid and fifteen other colours of dye. One to three sacs are dropped by squid when they die, but you can also get them while fishing. In Bedrock Edition, you’ll find them in stronghold storerooms, or you can craft them from base elements.

Duncan Geere[1]

Ink sacs are items dropped by squid. They are used to create black dye.
