It sounds as though you might have a hematoma inside your tongue where you have bitten through a blood vessel. As long as you can breath and eat, and it is not getting any bigger I would not worry. Sucking an icecube or a popsicle might help it go down. If it gets bigger or you get symptoms of a fever go to the emergency room.

What does the pain of a tongue piercing measure up to?

As each person is different there is no way to answer this in a general way. Some people say they experience no pain whatsoever, others say that it hurt a bit but it really only got bad when it swelled, and still others say that it was just an all around excruciating experience. It all depends on your pain tolerance in that particular area of your body. My best analogy is that it's like biting your tongue REALLY hard. Why bother finding out? Keep your tongue intact!
