How to permanently delete messages from iPad?

they just keep coming back
You messages (assuming you are referring to text/messages) are locally cached. You remove the cache by using iBackupbot http://www.icopybot.com/itunes-backup-manager.htm I haven't used it, but have heard a number of people give it good reviews.
"Backup your iPhone or iPad through iTunes. (Connect your iDevice to the PC/Mac, under the devices in iTunes, right click on your device and click on Backup Now; alternatively, you can also use the Back Up option from the Summary tab)
•Open iBackupbot
•From the sidepane, navigate to System Files > Mediadomain > Library > SMS > Attachments
•All the folders within Attachments are your Message cache containing all photos, video and media that you sent/received. Clear them out. At its best, delete all folders.
•Click on “Restore” so your iPhone is now restored to this backup.

Obviously, it doesn’t end here. If you have an iCloud backup already, you might have to flush that too. Go to Settings → iCloud → Storage & Backup and clear out any backup that exists. You can create a new backup."
