Using a marinade

I’m marinating skin-on chicken legs right now to bake for dinner tonight. The marinade is citrus / onion based. Should I pierce the meat before marinating is complete?

You certainly can. Just don’t marinate too long if the acid component is the main one, since the meat can turn out mushy.
