No professional body piercer is going to let you use alcohol to clean your piercing, it's too hard on the piercing and kills the new tissue trying to form. Follow the written aftercare instructions your professional body piercer provided you with during your piercing.

What happens when you get rubbing alcohol in your food?

That depends a great deal on a couple of things: Did you continue to eat that food? If so, then the answer depends on the quantity of rubbing alcohol. If it was a small amount, you should be fine. If it was a lot, you will probably get very sick. If it was a medium amount, you might get a little drunk, but your food will taste awful. In any case, you probably don't want to try to pour the rubbing alcohol back into the bottle and clean your ears out with it. That is a bad idea.
