A heart with a cross in it is often called a "sacred heart." Though I don't fully know the answer for the true meaning in the piece, I do know that it is a common icon in a lot of religious art, mostly Catholic. You will find the heart most often being held in the arms of the Virgin Mary or Jesus.
A tattoo of a heart could just easily symbolize love of something.
Crucified by society (smaller version of the skinhead on the cross tattoo), Jailhouse tattoo, Homemade tattoo - are normally the meaning it.

There aren't any specific or concrete meanings for certain tattoo symbols. For example: A cross to some may be just be a cross. But to others, there's a religious meaning.
