How do I turn off iMessage from showing the same messages on every device? I don't want them syncing across devices.

the only way would be to turn off iMessages on the device in question if it's a iOS device you will need to turn off messages and contacts in iCloud of which i wouldn't recommend because it basically deletes all of your contacts then displays a error that the device couldn't back up your contents to iCloud.

All you have to do is turn off iMessage. You do NOT have to turn off your contacts as the previous poster says. Absolutely no need to turn off and delete your contacts.

For iOS, its in the Messages section in Settings. In OS X, Messages, Preferences, Accounts tab, uncheck "Enable this account". This may or may not vary slightly from OS version to version for both OS's
