both can be tamed but iggys are alot harder to stay tame once they get mature they will become quite bullish and you dont really want a 7 ft lizard whiping or biteing you
if you want a lizard to hold go with a beardie as you will always be able to handle them easy as they only grow to about 2 ft
ive got a black and white tegu and all though they become quite docile you wont be able to hold a 4 ft plus lizard as easy they are best at that size to roam in a room you can still have it climb on to your shoulder but you wont be able to handle like you can a beardie when tegus are juvies they are just as skittish as monitors so still need alot of paitence
or why not try a aussy water dragon they are really nice looking lizards that get to 3ft and tame down very well they are allso mostly captive bred
as its against the law to remove a native animal from the wild in australia so will tame down better than a wild caught lizard

good luck :D like tombraider said theres nothing cute or cool with a 6 ft lizard whiping you the green iguana should really have a room to its self or a huge viv they are a big reptile
why not try a chinese water dragon they are a nice shade of green too?
and it would be better in the long run unless you have a big room
