This can happen when the object has 'shared UVs'.  UVs are the coordinate system that tells the software what part of the 2D image goes onto what part of the 3D model.  Essentially the 3D model is unwrapped and laid flat in image space.  If, during that unwrapping process, the UVs overlap, then any image placed onto one part of the model will show on the overlapping parts.  If this is a custom 3D model you can adjust by editing your UVs.
