    "Is there a way for OpenDNS to block those images"

    Try with adding to your "always block" list.  This is where all the images seem to be hosted on, not only the inappropriate ones.

    "...and/or to lock strict Safe Search as the only option?"

    Read this:

    "If not, is there another browser I can use that will prevent any inappropriate images from ever appearing?"

    Thanks!  Adding the to the block list seems to have worked.  Unfortunately, it prevents all images from displaying, but that will have to do for now.  I already read the safe search link you provided and have that enabled.  However, if you simply type what you are searching for in the address bar, it uses the search engine in preferences which is the standard URL.  I don't know of a way to set the URL as the default search path for Safari or iOS.  It basically gives you 4 options:  Google, Yahoo, Bing, and DuckDuckGo.  If I could figure out how to do that, then it should use safe search for all searches.

    You can do this with an own internal DNS server (or your local hosts files) and a mini web server, even for all devices and browsers in your network.

    You direct and to your web server which again redirects these requests to

    Alternatively, you can do this with an own proxy service where the URL parameter is added as of their Safe Search article.

    you have to use ad block extension to disable inappropriate ad's from displaying in your web browser, moreover you could browse in private window to surf anonmously.
