What happens when your income, over time, exceeds the $95,000-$110,000 limit? do you need to re-characterize your Roth IRA? what does that entail and at what point do you need to do that?

Each year stands alone. If your income increases to the point that you can't make more Roth contributions, you just can't make more contributions. There's no change in your existing account, and as long as you obey the rules on withdrawals, it remains tax-free.
