new spokes used wheel

my maverick blue aniodized rim rear wheel had all the spokes replaced they are all now crossing in a x pattern on both sides. I noticed that one spoke where it enters the metal wheel has a small bubble forming on the rim almost like a stress bubble 1/2 way down the side below the spoke, he did increase the tension on the new spokes it sometimes seems to dissapear, then after sittin awhile its back, the wheel dosen't have any cracks only that stress bubble
is this real bad it hasn't become any worse, I am checking before every ride.

If the rim becomes deformed from increased tension the result is usually the wheel becoming un-true and then small cracks appear near the spoke hole. If this is what is happening to your wheel you'll need a new rim. If a professional or shop mechanic rebuilt the wheel, he should be willing to fix the wheel for the costs associated with a new rim.
