আশীর্বাদপ্রাপ্ত ব্যক্তি (Aashirbad-prapto bekti)


Explanation:
Annoint means: To pour oil on a person's head. It meant that God's Spirit was helping that person to do a special job. In Bengali, a non-literal translation would be:

আশীর্বাদপ্রাপ্ত ব্যক্তি (Aashirbad-prapto bekti)

the annointed one
Ashirbadshikto/Shiddha purush / porishuddha bekti


Explanation:
There is a small spelling mistake in the word 'annointed'. It should read as 'anointed'.

The translation of the phrase 'Anointed One' as ashirbad-prato bekti' seems fine as far as religious context is concerned. But the asker noted that it is in the field of 'Textiles / Clothing / Fashion / Tattoo' and it made me confused.

Anyway, if the word is to be used as 'advertising or logo word', then it should be translated with more catchy words. Following are my suggestions

1. Ashirbadshikto- (without 'bekto' as it reduces the strength or stress of the word)
2. Shiddha purush (although 'one' refers to both male and female, here 'purush' seems very powerful)
3. porishuddha bekti

As the asker did not provide the context where the word will be used, fellow translators may check the following websites to have a good idea about the word

http://www.anointed-one.net/promises.html

For dictionary meaning, Saleh's definition can be seen.
