Do you want advice on a visual style for your watermark, or just the technical side?
Basically, you create your design in a .png or .psd. Draw in white and leave the background transparent. then just copy and paste over your pics and turn the opacity down to around 30 in the blending options for that layer. Some people also add thin lines that go corner to corner, but that can overpower the picture a little. others also create inner shadows on the watermark to make it visible on a range of backgrounds.

Answer by Don M
It is highly unusual to and will do no good to add a watermark to a logo.
You simply make the Logo a link
Watermark technology is done by software.
If you intent is so that the logo can’t be copied it is done much different than using a watermark,
Using a watermark is done so that you can prove that your registered Tardemark or your Registered Copyright can’t be duplicated and is much more indepth than simply placing an imbeded image on a logo.
