Create a new page with code similar to the following, except obviously taking the database field to display and parsing the BLOB into a Bitmap image rather than loading it from a file.
<%@ Page Language="C#" debug="true" %>
<%@ Import Namespace="System.Drawing" %>
<%@ Import Namespace="System.Drawing.Imaging" %>
 
<script language="C#" runat="server">
 
void Page_Load(Object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    Response.ContentType = "image/gif";
    new Bitmap("Image.tif").Save(Response.OutputStream, ImageFormat.Gif);
}
 
</script>

Using the code attached, if you set the Url of the image to "ImageFromDb.aspx?ImagePath=test.tif" it should work. Of course you'd want to modify it from using the path to using some key in the database or whatever.
<%@ Page Language="C#" debug="true" %>
<%@ Import Namespace="System.Drawing" %>
<%@ Import Namespace="System.Drawing.Imaging" %>
 
<script language="C#" runat="server">
 
void Page_Load(Object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    Response.ContentType = "image/gif";
    new Bitmap(Request.QueryString("ImagePath")).Save(Response.OutputStream, ImageFormat.Gif);
}
 
</script>
