MySQLdb.string_literal

I want to escape binary data so i can insert data into a blob

Using MySQLdb.string_literal(data) doesn't seem to escape everything ?

No, you don't want to escape binary data. You want to bind it to a
parametrized query:

Keep in mind, though, that MySQLdb uses %s as parameter markers instead
of the SQL standard question mark.
