Which one hurts more getting your tongue pierced or getting a tattoo?

The sensation of piercing varies from place to place, the tongue when pierced doesn't hurt so much as actually more a sensation of pressure. The nipples are again another sensation (keeping in mind we are talking about piercings done by a professional body piercer with skill and experience) completely different from tongue piercing. The sensation of pain is reduced by the client's mind set* (* do you want the piercing or don't you, if you want something it's much easier than when you have reservations about doing it ) and the skill of the piercer.

Is getting a tongue piercing a good idea?

Well getting a tongue piercing should be up to you, it's your body and your decision. You need to ask yourself if it's something you want and if so are you ready to go through the healing time and the swelling and discomfort in order to get it. Oral piercings are serious piercings and should never be taken lightly, there are risks and all these need to be discussed with your professional body piercer before you commit to getting the piercing. Talk to your piercer before you decide, that's what they are there for, ask questions and get answers that make sense to you.

Is there a way to reduce tongue depression left by a tongue bar and still keep the piercing?

You could get a longer piercing but that could be uncomfortable and is not reccomended. Depending on how long you have had the piercing, if you have had for a long period of time the depression could take a very long time to disappear or could say like that forever if you decide to remove it.
