The first one 窶伉カツ青カ should be ツ青カ窶伉カ, and means "being alive," "surviving," as Frank-san named the image. The second one means "living as daily life."

存生, as far as I know, means the same as 生存. It just means "to live/exist in this world". If anything, it sounds more archaic compared to 生存.

Is this for a tattoo, by any chance?
