A short question about love (and hate).

Did the movie NIGHT OF THE HUNTER (discussed here
) originate the device of having HATE tattooed on one hand, with LOVE tattooed on the other?

Was this a common prison practice, something in the zeitgeist that NIGHT IN THE HUNTER (and the other films) referenced, or were the tattoos specifically designed to comment on Mitchell's deranged preacher? (He honestly doesn't have a whole lot to do with love, even with his explanation of the tattoo in the context of the film, hence my confusion.)
