How Do You Lower Compression Ratio of Your Pistons

How do you lower the compression ratio of your pistons. I know getting a thicker head gasket will help but what else because you would need a lower ratio for a Turbo or Supercharger right?

You sure have an oddball way of looking at things

Reduce you comp height or rod lengths if a copper gasket isn't enough or it interferes with the valve timing.
