It's possible to use BLOBs to hold any data at all, raster included. 
Whether this is a "good idea" for you depends alot on what you are 
trying to do with your data. A possible simple image-holding table for 
postgis might be:

orig_filename varchar,
projection varchar,
collected date,
extents geometry,
image blob
